Austrian Grüner Veltliner is a white wine grape variety that is widely planted in Austria, particularly in the wine regions of Wachau, Kamptal, Kremstal, and Weinviertel. It is a versatile grape that can produce wines ranging from light and crisp to full-bodied and complex, depending on the winemaking style and terroir.
Grüner Veltliner wines are known for their distinctive aroma and flavor profile, which often includes notes of white pepper, green apple, citrus, and herbs. They can also display minerality and a slight spritziness. Grüner Veltliner is often enjoyed young, but can also age well, developing nutty and honeyed notes with time.
Austrian Grüner Veltliner is often described as a food-friendly wine due to its high acidity, which makes it an ideal pairing for a wide range of dishes, including seafood, poultry, spicy foods, and salads.
